Have you ever been frustrated by irritating behaviour and people? For instance:
Those are a few of my pet peeves. What are yours?
Have you ever wished you had a cool way to stop that irritating behaviour in its tracks?
I like this approach…
A mother from Norwich penned a hilarious note asking people to avoid knocking on her door and waking her new-born twins. This was after Natasha Butler’s small “No Salesmen etc.” sign was being ignored, so she thought she’d go one better in a bid to keep her sleeping beauties…well, sleeping.
The note, posted to the Unmumsy Mum’s Facebook page reads:
“Twin boys asleep.
Only knock on this door if:
a) You’re Gary Barlow
b) I’ve won on the premium bonds
c) Someone has died
Isn’t it great how Natasha took a problem into her own hands, and solved it with wit and humour? She didn't complain to the world about it. She took effective action.
Instead of getting stressed out about something or someone else – especially when it’s out of our control – how about taking a deep breath, and rethinking the situation?
It's very empowering when we take reasonable and effective action to make our world a better place.
By the way, who would you like to come knocking at your door? :-)
